Has anyone swapped the mirrors over to opposite ends? Got any pics? Are they useable, or do your arms get in the way?
Yup, after trying it, I couldn’t even give it a trial to see how useful they’d be.... it was just obvious as soon as fitted that they’d be dangerous.Under bar mirrors (which are quite different from the accepted position for bar end mirrors) usually look pretty cool and most of the time you can get a fairly good field of view from them BUT the mirrors are no longer in your line of sight and depending on your handlebars and seating position may not even be in your peripheral vision. To look at the mirror means you have to consciously move your eyes away from the road which can be dangerous but it also means you may not be aware of traffic behind you. I would never say don’t do it all I would say is think it through and balance safety v looks then make your decision in your circumstances.
Same here, I flipped mine and only put one on. 5'6" here as well, barely have legs so knees are never in the way. Works great. Also Turned up my own bronze bar end weights and made the one side incorporate the mirror. I also find that the bell Bullitt has great peripheral for over the shoulder checks when needed.
Lovin' the black and red seat cowl. Very nice.Guess I should have mentioned mine is an Icon, didn't notice this was the Café Racer subforum, apologies.
But yeah, if I had a CR I'd flip it and reverse like Missy Elliot.
